50 Glass Marbles
16 mm Black Beauty Marbles
Perfect for collectors and for playing with!
There's a beautiful collection of marbles here!
These are jet black and opaque. Beautiful, just like the name suggests!!! :-)
They are all the same size - approx. 16 mm across,
Great FUN for in the playground!
Or maybe a bit too specialist for that?
Weight is 296 gm total.
I sell all sort of marbles, different styles, colours, qualities and sizes but am happy to combine postage on any combination and am also usually open to listing different quantities for a specific request.
As you can probably tell photography is not my strong point but honesty is, so if you have anything else you want to know? Just ask.
Postage costs - I try to be fair about postage costs. We charge only cost plus the VAT that we have to charge. The good news is, that if you buy more than one item from me I will usually reduce postage costs AND the more you buy the more the reduction. Please see postage costs quoted for this item on this listing, there is a postage tab just below the photo that shows postage options and costs for first and additional items. The bad news - e bay’s calculator is not flexible enough to mesh with Royal Mail’s charges so if e bay doesn’t combine postage automatically, or if you buy several different items or even if you have bought more than 3 of any one item, ask for an invoice, that way I can combine the postage costs. This will be done asap but within 24 hours. But for several smaller items, this usually means you get a big reduction AND I can post them first class. (Reductions tend to be less for overseas buyers, sorry) Just be assured I will do my best for you. In the past I have refunded over-payments when new/naive buyers have paid too much. That is no longer possible with our new Royal Mail contract as we pay average prices. But please it is much easier and more efficient if you request an invoice before you pay. Again it's that honest streak in me! I'll never be a millionaire. :-)
UK PROMOTIONAL POSTAGE DISCOUNT
To UK buyers* - no matter how many items you buy from me the MAXIMUM postage you will be charged is £8.50.
This will be delivered by Parcelforce on a 24-48 hour delivery with a tracked service
print - Timing of 24-48 hours starts after collection from us, which will
usually be at midday, the day after you pay.
Overseas postage / shipping information - We are happy to send items overseas and we appreciate our overseas buyers.We send a high proportion of items overseas every day and mostly items arrive within 3-10 days. Below please find information about specific countries/region.
Western Europe delivery is usually 3-7 days
Eastern Europe - delivery is usually longer - varies widely from 5-25 days
Australia is our most popular long distance destination and items usually arrive within 5-7 days
USA e bay have ruled that we can now only send to USA by a tracked service, I am sorry but this does add to the cost for the buyers BUT I agree with e bay as we have had many issues because of Homeland Security / Customs delaying items and US buyers being dissatisfied. This has obviously caused e bay issues too. So US buyers please select the Airsure option when ordering.
Royal Mail do not consider an overseas parcel 'lost' unti it is 25 days overdue. Only THEN can I refund or replace. Except for the following;
Whilst we post items immediately and Royal Mail are fantastic, postal services in other countries are a lot less efficient. If you come from these countries, please note;
Russia - items can take 6-8 weeks to arrive, but I believe most Russians already know the system,
South America shipping time seems to be 6-8 weeks.If you are not happy to wait that length of time, please do not buy from us.
IF you have any problems with any of my items just let me know immediately and I'll sort it out. I have 6 figure feedback with very few negatives. This is because when occasionally there has been a problem I have always tried to sort it out! Though occasionally some buyers haven’t realised that if they contact me (or hopefully any seller) we actually want to sort out the problems. So PLEASE contact me if you are unhappy with my items or my service before leaving neutral or negative feedback. Give me a chance to put things right first!
Most of the problems I have had are because Royal Mail has lost the parcel. I do always get a proof of posting, but Royal Mail do not consider a UK parcel ‘lost’ until it is 15 days overdue. Only THEN can I refund/replace etc. We have to allow Royal Mail to sort their problems first. If an item that is too large to go through your letterbox does not arrive, I will ask you to go to your local sorting office.
Please note all Parcels posted through Royal Mail are insured for up to about £35 so for most of my items further insurance is not necessary.
It really hurts being left an unfair feedback. Please think about that if/when you leave negative feedback, I DO take it personally. I am honest, I bend over backwards sometimes to be reasonable, responsible and efficient but despite that as one of my buyers put it if it's not gold plated and delivered yesterday you can't please everyone! But I try hard to have only satisfied customers.
Please note we always try to post on the day or the next working day after I have received payment. Normally any item paid for by 3.30 any weekday will be posted the same day but life happens and so that is not always possible, but we try our best! I believe 99+% of my items are posted within 2 working days of payment.
Items where buyer selects next day tracked option will be dispatched at 4.30 each weekday, if paid after 4.30 then item will be posted the following working day.
Here are a few feedback comments about speed of dispatch.
(All these items were posted in the 2 week run-up to Christmas)

Please note about once a month I am often away for a couple of days, usually with access to a computer so I can probably answer queries etc, my staff are able to post out 99% of items but I’m unable to deal with some queries or problems on those days. Sorry but these are my respite breaks (I have 2 disabled children) and these are absolutely vital!! I do try to take them so there is as little disruption to e bay buyers as possible.
Following feedback comments are all taken from comments received over approx only 2 weeks. And all in the exceptionally busy run up to Christmas. Please see that I try to please.
